Kayla has always had a keen interest in the flourishing local design and arts culture, which she grew up in, living in the city of Cape Town. Shortly after starting her path as a designer and illustrator, Kayla began thinking of how she wanted to define herself within the local commercial industry and came up with the brand Kayla Rain Co. which represents her quirky and charming style, and has since began creating everything from bags, cushion covers, tea towels to art prints and more.
Her style has a definitive undertone of femininity and charm, which she brings to life through illustrative fine-liner drawings and textural Wacom sketches. She likes to mix traditional mediums with modern ones, to create a unique blend of trend and nostalgia.
She uses her skills as both Graphic Designer and Illustrator to enable her self to see the creation of her products through from drawing board to production room floor.
